Welcome to Concord. The Admissions staff will occasionally be working remotely. During this period, you may reach us at our regularly published phone extensions and email addresses, and we will be available during regular business hours. Return calls, not made from the office, are being made through a third-party application.  If you are expecting a return call from our office, it may also come from a Mount Hope, WV number that appears as (681) 422-xxxx. Thank you for your patience and please be safe.

We are available for scheduled tours of campus. You must make a reservation in advance. Click the "Visit CU" link below to make a reservation, and to understand the rules we will ask you to follow to keep everyone safe while on campus.  We cannot wait to CU on campus soon!

Shawn Hatcher

Princeton, W.Va.

Shawn is a second generation Mountain Lion, but that is only one detail that finalized his decision to choose CU after graduating from Pikeview High School in 2017. The university also had the program of study he wanted, and its location meant Shawn could commute to save money. He is a Business Administration major with concentrations in management and finance. When Shawn isn’t in class, you’ll find him working in the business office as a work-study in the Accounts Payable office. Shawn says the real life experiences that professors share and the work experience he has received at Concord has prepared him for the kind of job he wants when he graduates, one similar to the job he currently does at CU. Education aside, Shawn says his favorite part about Concord is the people. “It felt like home from the time I stepped on the campus in 2017,” Shawn says. “Most of everyone is relaxed and will help out if you are in need.”

Dr. Michael Bean

Assistant Professor of Education and Interim Assistant Provost

Dr. Bean is excited to be part of Concord’s Education Department, working with students he describes as respectful and ready to learn. One lesson Dr. Bean and our other faculty members teach Concord students is the reality of the profession. Through a variety of placements and teaching opportunities, or “in the fire” opportunities as Dr. Bean describes them, our students are prepared to enter the field.

“I have a passion for education. I see how that can open doors and create opportunities.”

Brian Arnold '09

Bluefield, WV

Brian Arnold, a screenwriter living in Los Angeles, is proof that your degree from CU can be a foundation for achieving your dreams. As a Communication Arts graduate, Brian worked in telecommunications and broadcast journalism before taking a chance with screenwriting. “I knew I wouldn’t be happy until I gave writing a real shot,” Brian says. And while his degree wasn’t in film study, he says the electives he took at Concord gave him practical production experience that has helped him in his current career. “I got to make live TV. I got to make my own short films. I got to study screenwriting and film. And, more than that, my time at Concord helped me grow into a more mature, professional person ready to give the real world a shot.”
